present for miss A

The weekend went by fast. It included a trip to a museum, delicious cakes in my new favourite café, a movie (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), a long long walk in the sun, and lots of chatting. Miss A and I have known each other for nearly 22 years, and for 19 of those we've lived in the same city. Nowadays we don't get to see each other half as often as I'd like to - and I wish the weekend had lasted twice as long... But I hope I get to visit A soon! Or soonish, anyway.

As I said, I made a little birthday present for A. A year ago she moved into a flat with a balcony; I know she's dreaming about having her own garden, so I gave her something to help her turn her balcony into a mini-garden...

I happened to find cute gardening tools (I don't know if she actually needs them, but I had to buy them anyway). Then I bought small pots and some seeds; I would've liked to find pretty gardening gloves as well, but couldn't - maybe it was too early for them.




I sewed an apron (which here is modeled by miss A, and already wrinkled...) with a pocket just large enough for those seed bags (the other side of the apron is solid light blue).





And a little bag too, to put all the stuff in.




It was so nice to be able to sew something - it's been a long time since I've really had time for sewing! I have some other presents to sew, and I wish I could work on them instead that stupid paper...

Kiitokset! :) Thank you!

Heidi, olen tykästynyt Runoon, vaikka se ei ehkä ole tämänhetkisten tulojeni kannalta kovin viisasta... Amurin helmessäkin pitäisi kyllä käydä uudelleen, liikun vain kovin harvoin siinä osassa kaupunkia.
